Make pharmacy is your career
Having to visit the pharmacy is one of life's unpleasant, but necessary tasks. If you're well, lingering among possibly contagious people while waiting on a refill seems unbearable. And if you are ill, patience is certain to be at a minimum. More than anything, you just want to get your medicine and go home. You wonder how hard it could be to fill a simple prescription.
It's harder than you might think. Pharmacists do more than just dispense medicine. They are consummate professionals assuming the roles of information provider, safety officer, health counselor, and insurance agent. Besides the careful attention the pharmacist must devote to each prescription, there are a variety of factors affecting your pharmacy visit.
Many of them—inventory, pricing, and client volume—are beyond your control. However, there are a few things you can do to improve your overall pharmacy experience, insure your safety, and perhaps decrease your wait time.
